10 Tips on Dating/Marrying a DIY Blogger



Do you ever think, "It will take a special guy to deal with all of this?" I do all of the time-- when I look at my closet full of furniture, when I look at myself in the mirror after working all day on a project, when my house looks like an episode of hoarders because I went crazy at the thrift store... I could go on. Just for fun, I decided to make a list of tips for dating (or marrying) a DIY Blogger. Here's what I've come up with so far:

1. Be patient. Whether I'm working on a blog post, painting a room for the 100th time, moving furniture, etc., you'll need patience. 


2. I will convert you to my thrifty ways. You will find yourself saying, "You could just make that!" or unconsciously keeping toilet paper rolls. Just accept it now, ok? Don't fight it.

3. Don't be intimated by a woman with powertools... it's lame. If you're a handy man, though, be prepared to work.

4. Know when to talk me out of buying a piece of furniture, craft/sewing supplies, or tools (example: if you know we won't be able to pay the rent, or feed the kids, it's time for an intervention).


5. At least act like you're paying attention when I talk about my next big idea.


6. If you have a truck, you're even cuter (so you can pick up/transport all of my furniture).

 7. Start working out.. you'll need big muscles to help me move furniture. If you can't lift furniture, you can substitute that quality by being a computer wiz. If you can lift furniture and you're a computer wiz.. marry.me.now.

8. Don't call me a hoarder. Call me a collector. In the DIY blogger world, garages aren't meant for cars and closets aren't meant for clothes.


9. Tell me I look cute in my paint clothes. Even if I don't.

10. If you're looking for a gift idea, how to propose, or just wonder what our wedding will look like, check out my Pinterest boards. Duh.

So, what would you add to the list? I plan on adding your ideas to the bottom of this post (just keep it clean!)
